Today we’re excited to announce that WooCommerce Bookings 1.12.0 has been released!
1.12.0 will be our final release for WooCommerce Bookings in 2018 and we’ve made several feature updates alongside compatibility work for WooCommerce 3.5.
Customer Timezone Functionality
The major feature for this update is giving you the ability to display a timezone to your customers. You have the option of showing your timezone or the timezone in your customer’s locale. When you visit your WooCommerce Bookings calendar settings in the admin you will see the two new timezone options to choose from.
When you select to have your calendar settings display in the visitors locale this will populate all throughout the lifecycle of your customers booking experience ( product page, cart, checkout, etc.. ) ensuring that they are informed of the timezone that they originally booked under.
Another feature we’ve added is to have the entire range of days preselected if your customer is booking based on a number of days.
For example if your customer is booking for a duration of 3 days they will no longer have to select each day individually. After selecting a date the calendar will auto-select all subsequent days for that duration.
- We’ve also added a new feature that allows you to either choose which day of the week to start the calendar on or have it auto-detect the correct start day for the week based on the customers locale.
- We’ve added compatibility for WooCommerce 3.5
On top of the new features, there are a variety of minor tweaks, and fixes which we won’t go into detail here but you can check out for yourself in the changelog.
We hope you enjoy this new functionality and wanted to note that several of these features came directly from the ideas board so please keep that feedback coming.
